You can configure your network to provision Polycom telephony devices directly out of the box to work with NocTel.  This is typically done from a dedicated provisioning VLAN and not the typical voice VLAN network.


In order to do this, add a DHCP Option 160 to your DHCP Server with the content "https://noctel.com"


Upon initial boot up of the device, it will configure the phone's bootloader with the following settings:

  • Enable DHCP
  • Disable CDP
  • Enable LLDP
  • Set the provisioning server type to HTTPS
  • Set the provisioning server to noctel.com


The Polycom device will then reboot and provision as if it was configured manually.


Common switch and firewall DHCP configurations


Juniper EX-series 13.0 and below using DHCP:

system {

   services {

     pool 10.0.0.0/24 {

      address-range low 10.0.0.100 high 10.0.0.254;
      name-server {
        10.0.0.1;
        10.0.0.2;
      }
      router {
        10.0.0.1;
      }
      option 160 string https://noctel.com/;
    }
  }

 }


Juniper using JDHCP:

system {
  services {
    dhcp-local-server {
      group JDHCP {
        interface vlan.1;
      }
    }
  }
}
access {
  address-assignment {
    pool JDHCPVR-POOL {
      family inet {
        network 10.0.0.0/24;
        range JDHCPVR-RANGE {
          low 10.0.0.100;
          high 10.0.0.254;
        }
        dhcp-attributes {
          router {
            10.0.0.1;
          }
          option 160 string https://noctel.com/;
        }
      }
